What to do about excessive thrist especially after large meals and coffee?

I posted a thread here earlier about my symtoms. About 1.5 m ago I started experiencing excessive thirst, I even went to the emergency. They checked my FSG and it was 97. Then I got A1C which was 5.2. 3 hours after eating my non fasting test showed 109. My doctor doesn't suggest anything, he doesn't think I am diabetic though. I have been stressing out at work a lot when the symptoms started and was eating sandwiches for like 10 days in a row . Now I stress out less and started eating better so I feel much better and less thristy. But the other day after a big meal int he evening, I again got super thristy and my lips were all dry. Today I had coffee and again got pretty thirst, drank 2-3 cups of water after that. I drink a lot, not go to bathroom too much though. I don't wake up at night to drink bt in my mornings when I wake up I have a dry mouth. Can I still be diabetic? I am very worried about my symtoms. My doctor wants me to take FSG after 12 h fasting.

I'd appreciate any tips to help me feel better. Also, note that I have no family history of diabetes.
